Yemeni President Abdrabbu Mansour Hadi on Monday directed his army to launch a military operation towards the capital, Sanaa.

Neighborhoods of Sanaa have witnessed large demonstrations despite the continued clashes and shootings. Protesters chanted "No more Houthi".

Yemeni Prime Minister Ahmed bin Daghr said earlier that Yemeni legitimacy supports whoever fights Houthi militias in order to eliminate the Iranian project in the Middle East.

The death toll of clashes between the General People's Congress (GPC) forces and Houthi militias in Sanaa rose to more than 200, and tens of injuries.
